victim to crime and abuse. meet cnn hero, zach hudson. >> i have been a police officer now for a little over ten years. we see people at their worst. the one thing that i have seen over and over again is victimization of the elderly. they are the forgotten portion of our society that nobody thinks about. they are alone yet they don't ask for help. hey, buddy. you got a flat tire going there. >> i know, i don't have money to fix it. >> that's not good. they are that much easier to victimize. if i can help you with that tire, give me a call. i realized something had to be done. i'd had enough. i have raised by my grandparents, my great grandmother. i'm bringing this community together to keep seniors safe. >> mr. anderson. how are you? cops and firefighters see people with problems. they reach out directly to us. >> my floor getting mushy. i was scared to death that i'd go right down through it. >> we contacted nonfor profits. we get it taken care of for free. if we can get the tile down, the wheelchair won't take its toll on the floor. there's no job too small. we have 25 yards to do. it
is cnn contributor. good to see you reuben. does michael bloomberg have a point there or would it be too knee jerk for either the president or candidate to start talking about gun issues right now? >> good to be back with you. i think too quick, too soon. i think what americans want is pretty much what president bill clinton accomplished after the oklahoma city bombing, a sense of empathy to help with the healing but never get in front of a story. never be seen as trying to shove these events into a preset agenda. clinton did not do that after oklahoma city. it would be a mistake to do that here. >> does this tragedy set the stage for either of these candidates to at some point address their platform as it pertains to guns specifically as we are just about three months away from people going to the polls? >> i would agree that when the time comes that conversation needs to happen. what needs to happen is the discussion that one individual can accumulate an arsenal of weapons without drawing the attention of authorities. whether you are concerned about domestic security or terrorism threa

dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's
to get right to cnn's jim acosta. he's covering mitt romney today delivering some major messages of his own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston

has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then
terrorism are here in colorado for the aspen institute security forum that's co-sponsored with cnn and "new york times." today i had a chance to conduct the first-ever public in-depth interview with u.s. navy admiral who planned the raid that killed osama bin laden. admiral william mcraven may not be a household name, but as you're about to see, he's a genuine u.s. hero. this is the guy who's sitting right here who had the guts to tell the commander in chief we should do it, let's do it. and when you ordered that raid and when you said -- you didn't even know for sure that bin laden was abbottabad at that compound about a mile or so away from the west point of pakistan, did you? >> let me make one thing clear, i didn't order the raid. >> but he told the president of the united states that he thought he could do it. [ laughter ] >> i mean, and this is not a small point. the fact of the matter is it was the president of the united states that ordered the raid. >> and he deserves an enormous amount of credit for that decision. >> he does. [ applause ] >> and when he came to the head of special
. >> well, first of all we've complied with the law. >> what mitt romney made clear to cnn last friday is he will only make public his tax return. >> those are the two years that people are going to have. >> -- did not sit well with conservatives on the sunday show. >> he should release the tax returns tomorrow. it's crazy. take the hit for a day or two. >> the costs of not releasing the returns are clear. therefore he wants to calculate there are higher costs. >> standing firm, romney told fox there's some precedent on his side. >> john mccain ran for president and released two years of tax returns. john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars never released her tax returns. somehow this wasn't an issue. >> but the republican complaints are music to the ears for the obama campaign, which fired off this tv ad, featuring romney singing "america the beautiful" to some of his foreign investments. >> the romney campaign cued up the own music video. the president belting out a love song to companies that got energy loans in exchange for campaign contributions. ro
